Verdict

Tom George: "He's the sort of horse that enjoys a bit of sun on his back and he won really well. It's always good to have a winner at Cheltenham. We'll keep him going as this is his time of year. He is entered in what used to be the Whitbread at Sandown. That might be shooting at stars a little bit, but we'll see what the options are."
